  1. The snow swirled around slowly outside the front glass door. It was finally beginning to stick as William headed out the door to look for the cab. Mrs. Sacowitz stood in the doorway, watching as Will made his way to the street and looked down. “I can wait for the cab, William. There is no need for you to stay with me.” William turned and looked at Mrs. Sacowitz as she stood in the doorway, her hat on her head, covering her ears, the gloves, the cane, the long black coat, and her slightly bent

  2. And we’re off! CJ just celebrated his sixteenth birthday, got a Jeep as a present from his fathers, and is about to fly to Sydney to spend his Christmas vacation in Australia. When outlining the cast of characters who would populate this story, I wanted to make the group diverse and decided to include a couple of men from other countries. One of them turned out to be an Aussie, giving me an excuse to send the boy to Oz. I’ve been lucky to interact―in person or on line―with some incredible men f

Headstall's Reflections Chapter 3- CG- On My Mind It resonates inside, the pain of others Wishing we could give the comfort of mothers The mockery of life may divert our own pain But if that’s the case, it’s a minuscule gain I confess from this fright, I wish for respite But nothing compares to the battle you fight I fervently wish the best for my friends My sympathy sears for the goodness chance rends Powerless I feel, in too many ways As life’s cruel whip cares no

  4. As I walk further into the village I see there are stalls laid out around the entrances to the houses. I wander over to one and find it set out with artefacts. I’m fascinated with the display. I’ve read about these things, seen photographs, even seen them in cabinets in museums, carefully catalogued and labelled, but to see them lying here, higgledy piggeldy as if someone had just thrown them down, is just about blowing my mind. A woman in full kit is explaining to a lady with a couple of kids

  5. Parker's Birthday Party Well, the party went off without a hitch. For those who had never met me before, I was introduced up front as Parker’s boyfriend, so there was no possibility of things being misinterpreted or me feeling excluded. I even met Parker’s brother, Nick, for the first time. He was pretty friendly to me. When he met me, he said, “Oh, so you’re the guy I’ve been hearing so much about. Hmm, you don’t look gay at all.” He meant that as a compliment. So I replied, “O

    Party like it's 1899! This is one of the catalogs the great department store ran to commemorate its fiftieth anniversary. I love how sporting Miss 1899 is! She's ready to go, as they say, and looking sidelong at her dour grandma - Mrs. 1849. I love this artwork too!!! So perfectly up-to-date, and advanced! Reminds me most of the Scottish school of Art Nouveau, with Rennie Mackintosh and his wife, Margaret Macdonald.

  7. When the Christmas break was over Nathaniel started the year high on his overpowering feelings towards Dane. There were days when Nathaniel felt that it just could not get any better and Dane topped himself yet again; surprising Nathaniel with simple things that sent him over the moon. Even his mom was softening towards him. “Hmm, he is caring, I’ll admit that”, she observed, when she came home to see Dane taking care of him when he got sick. She was even civil to him on occasions as he was

  10. Nathaniel’s eighteenth birthday passed with him and his mom having lunch together. Nathaniel had quite forcefully told his mom that he did not want another ‘surprise party’, in which she invited his ‘friends’ from school to help him celebrate. Thankfully this year she had listened. Nathaniel had also warned her that he was going out later so she was not too worried that he was going to spend the evening of his birthday alone while she went to work. Dane told him to dress up and they went out

He moved away from the door and walked briskly to the refrigerator where he gulped down water. He, Nathaniel George Farafax, made out with a taxi driver who he had met only a few minutes before!!

She either thinks i am deaf or do not speak the English language". He finished with a wide smile which did strange things to Nathaniel's insides. "I know a lot more, but i can't give away all of my secrets on the first meeting, now can I?" He licked his lips and glanced at Nathaniel's for a second, he then turn his attention back to control

Thank you." The white haired, elderly lady spoke in a clear voice as a few other invigilators started to collect the papers. Nathaniel took a deep breath and exhaled trough his mouth. Now he can relax. This was his most difficult subject and he believed that he has done well on it. He glanced over his

New Year’s Eve Adam was trying very hard not to yawn, Mrs. Gregoren was a lovely lady but she could talk forever, about nothing. “Adam!” came Ben’s panicked voice in his mind. “Excuse me please ma’am, I need to be somewhere,” he said as calmly as he could and moved away from the vocal woman. He just caught the “Well really,” as he got out of ear shot. “What’s wrong my mate?” he asked as he made his way toward the exit. Ben had stayed home with Thomas and Jamie’s children as babysitter.

    I couldn't resist putting this in as it features at a dramatic moment in my 'Mparntwe' story. This trigger plant was at the top of the cliffs. The flowers themselves are quite small - about 1 cm (1/4 inch) across. If you look carefully you can just make out the the actual triggers with their sticky substance which flick shut and trap small insects. Yes - it's a carnivorous plant. ( lol -a mini triffid).

  21. After the warmest Easter weekend since records began, our first day back at school was cold and wet. I sat next to Daniel on the school bus, listening to a dozen different excited conversations going on around me. My weekend had also been fairly eventful, to put it mildly. It had certainly started with a bang on Thursday night, when I had sexual intercourse with a girl for the first time. I still wasn’t sure if I lost my virginity with Fran that night or with Tom a few months earlier, it depend

  23. Parker's Birthday (Part 2) I was awakened in the morning by Parker fidgeting. Usually when I awoke without an alarm clock going off, I'd turn over and fall back to sleep. Once Parker awoke and went through his waking up contortions, he was ready to take on the new day, so sitting still in bed was not his strong suit. He would try for my benefit, but he'd fidget. He usually slept longer than me, so it normally wasn’t an issue, but it was the day of his 18th birthday party, so he was t

  24. Nathaniel's good mood lasted for the whole night. He was singing in the shower, smiling while re-reading Dane's messages, touching his lips while smiling and worst of all he laid on his back, on his bed, and replayed the conversation that they had in the car, over and over again in his head. At some point he forced himself to open his Geography textbook and got some studying done for his exams tomorrow. Dane and his sexy kisses were never too far from his mind. Nathaniel woke up thirty m

  25. I'm sure your child is precious to you. All parents think their child is precious. I know your child is excited about his Christmas presents and wants to show our son. Our son is excited about his as well, and wants to spend his Christmas vacation playing Xbox One with his dad. You know the one who works 12 hour shifts and only gets to spend a day with our boy every other week? We understand your son loves your pets. We love ours too, and consider her part of the family. She protects us, loves us and is excited to see us when we return home. We don't bring her down to your home to bang on your door or do her business in your yard. Please help your son understand coming down once to see if our son wants to play is acceptable. Coming down every hour, is excessive and intrusive. Bringing toys down to bang on the door is upsetting, to the two legged and four legged residents. Please have your son keep his toys and pets at home. ok, rant over, you may resume your regular reading......

Anikin called earlier to let me know our movie plans had to be rescheduled, because he’d been loaded up with work at the firm for the evening, probably some of the night as well, so he couldn’t say when he would be home. I wasn’t really surprised it turned out like this, most of the time had come to be like this lately anyway, and I didn’t want to be a bother to his work. The only problem about this change in my everyday life, was my boredom. Sure I could hang out with Sean and the other guys f

More than anything I wanted to stay in his arms, but I worried that it was just me. It would be awkward enough to face him tomorrow without me throwing my feelings into it. This wasn’t the first time I’d been with someone I knew, and I’d gotten hurt enough when I wanted to have more than they wanted to give. The fact that I'd slept with a teammate and not just a clas

Lana held the lighted spliff out to Nathaniel. Nathaniel looked from the smoking stick to Lana's face then back again, "you see, that is the difference with you and I, Lana. I", he pointed at himself, "do not feel the need to turn my system into a chimney and especially not when I have an exam in half an hour, while you," he pointed at Lana,

It's because our dentist's office was quiet. So, wonderfully quiet. Maybe quiet isn't the right word. It was clean. It was at Dr. Blacknam's office that I learned that cleaning works for leftover emotional crud like it works for dirt and bacteria. So, if something is clean it doesn't set off my empathy triggers.
